When should you trust your heart? It's 1942 when Cassie Taylor reluctantly leaves Birmingham to become a land girl on a farm in Dorset. There she meets Robert and Stephen Denham, twins recovering from injuries sustained at Dunkirk. Cassie is instantly drawn to Stephen, but is wary of the more complex Robert - who doesn't seem to like Cassie one little bit. At first, Robert wants to sack the inexperienced city girl. But Cassie learns quickly, and Robert comes to admire her courage, finding himself deeply attracted to Cassie. But just as their romance blossoms, he's called back into active service...

You'll read this in one sitting if you have the time because the plot demands it! I'd be hard-pressed to find a single wasted word or rambling paragraph. If you get bored with passive romantic heroines and fancy a bit of grit and action with your boy-meets-girl tale then this one is probably for you!
Her fiance Rob is missing during the war and we anxiously await his fate and feel everything that Cassie is feeling, her despair and worry.
Margaret James has produced a fast paced romance containing both sadness and laughter in equal measure. This is a must read book.
As with all Chock Lit books, you know you are going to get a really good read and something that will hock you in straightaway and keep your attention through out. Margaret has written a lovely engaging story in The Penny Bangle. It is set in the latter stages of the 2nd World War and there are many references about it but this really is a love story. A story about a young girl and her connection to a family that she meets when she goes to help work on their farm.
Beautifully written with strong leading characters, simple to read that just carries you along gently as the story progresses. I certainly would like to read the first two books in the trilogy to see what happened in the other Family members lives (The Silver locket and the The Golden Chain ).
Thank you ChocLit for sending me a copy to read - as always, I was not disappointed!
Its 1942 and the war is on. Cassie is a skinny young women who's Gran is worried about her being in Birmingham with all of the air raids. Cassie is persuaded to go down to a farm in Dorset and become a Land girl. She meets Francis and the twins Steven & Robert.
Steve is funny, friendly and happy to teach Cassie in what she needs to do, Robert just thinks she's too skinny, week and a city work shy runt to be of any use when he and his brother have to return to active service. Things change, Cassie falls for Roberts charm, but soon gets bored of being a land girl. Her and Frances decide to join up together into the ATS. The result is that Cassie becomes strong, confident but still very much in love with Robert. They are both stationed in North Africa and get time together where he proposes marriage.
With Africa won, Cassie gets sent back to Blighty and Robert goes on to Italy, where he goes missing in action and is believed to be dead. Mean while back in Blighty Steven is there and has fallen for Cassie. But he struggles with the fact he can not return to active service but instead is behind a desk in London.
The Penny Bangle is the third book in a trilogy (The Silver Locket (1) and The Golden Chain (2)) However, even though I have not read the 1st two I still was able to follow the story lines and this delightfully written book has inspired me to go back and read the 1st two.
Robert Denham who Cassie loves, is somewhat like a Yorkie bar, he is solid, dependable and it would take a lot to break him. Steven, however reminds me of a Kit Kat caramel because even he's not sure of who or what he is. The Penny Bangle is everything that you would expect from Choc Lit publications. It does not disappoint and exceeds all expectations.
